Philippe Starck watches really can be placed in a niche of their own. The man behind the creations, Philippe Starck, is a renowned for his interior design work as well as being famous for his homeware items that move beyond the boundaries of conventional design.
The range of Philippe Starck watches are incredibly contemporary – some could even be described as futuristic and all boast minimal designs but with smooth contours and unique shapes and features. Each and every Philippe Starck watch is a showpiece that creates a statement and portrays original personal style!
There are some new Philippe Starck watch designs in at Shade Station, the first being the PH5036 watch which is a unisex style and features a stainless steel case and a black rubber strap. The ‘mystery’ dial which is sleekly contained within the main body of the watch is uniquely designed by Starck; displaying the logo at the fifteen minute marker and like the remainder of watch, the design is completely minimal. This watch also comes in white.
A further new design is the PH5039 Philippe Starck watch which boasts the same minimal mystery dial but with a white leather strap. This adds an ultra streamlined yet statement look on the wrist and is a great example of Starck’s ability to create something innovative and visually interesting –injecting that element of intrigue!
The last new design recently added to the collection is the PH1116 Philippe Starck watch. Definitely one of the more futuristic inspired watches, this style features a stainless steel case and a black rubber strap that sits like a band around the wrist but is slightly wider at the front section. The dial is digital and features a red LED display and the Starck logo is subtly positioned directly underneath.
Sometimes it is often refreshing to find a brand that completely moves away from current trends and what is regarded as ‘in fashion’ and instead focuses on its own unique and innovative style that makes the products incredibly distinctive, unusual and exciting. This is definitely the case with Philippe Starck watches and a great opportunity to experience a piece of this highly renowned designer’s work!

Fossil likes to keep their watch collections exciting and is constantly reinventing their designs to keep up with style and cultural trends. The brand is so popular because the watches are very fashion forward; capturing key trends such as the layered look or the ceramic strap look for example but remain true to the unique raw Fossil style and quality.
To really inject a style shake up, Fossil have also teamed up with iconic designer Philippe Starck who has created a superb range of watches for the brand, all of which are great examples of dynamic innovation and have a minimal and futuristic aesthetic.
Philippe Starck is quite the legendary designer and his work ranges from laying out restaurants and hotels to designing chairs and toothbrushes. The designer looks at everyday objects and likes to play around with funky designs and turn them into a work of art. His recent collaboration with Fossil has led to a collection of sleek watches that have a typical Starck architectural influence.
The Philippe Starck watch collection comprises of a range of digital and analogue watches for Fossil and experiments with a minimal and elegant look with a hint of futuristic styling. The new and exclusive Philippe Starck O Ring Digi watch is a new addition and has a sleek stainless steel bracelet strap with the focal point being an LCD dial – the central section of the dial is open to create ring effect. The exclusive Palidrome PH6000 is incredibly streamlined and minimal with a white leather strap and a white Starck dial with barely any detailing. This is definitely a striking watch and a conversation piece! The new unisex Glitz Digi is a beautiful watch with a white rubber strap and a diamante embellished case to add some glitz and glamour. The dial has a multi module digital display. This watch is also available in black.
The Philippe Starck watches are a great addition to the collection and definitely add something completely unique; Fossil likes to use the influence of architecture within their designs and Starck was the perfect designer choice as his work typically turns everyday objects into statements. His fascination with architecture has been a strong influence in the design of the Fossil watches as each and every one is sleek and streamlined and experiments with colours to add definition. His minimal yet effective watch designs are incredibly striking and are of course timelessly stylish as they are unique to Starck’s inspiration.

Interior design buffs will be more than familiar with the name Philippe Starck. One of the most influential contemporary designers of the noughties era, Parisian-born artist Starck has wowed consumers with everything from super-sleek hotel designs to artefacts and interiors, and now he’s made his moved into the foray of watch-wear.
The son of an aircraft designer, Starck set up his first company in 1968 producing inflatable objects and since then, he’s continued to be influenced by the world of fashion and popular culture. To date, he’s created mineral-water bottles for Glacier, kitchen appliances for Alessi, luggage for Louis Vuitton and Samsonite and computer gadgets for Microscoft, as well as his most recent collaboration with Fossil watches.
Believing that all his products should be simple, efficient and durable – with stunning design and practicality, Starck’s watches are as far away from your traditional watch as you can get. Undeniably modernistic and striking to the eye, they all boast high-design features, but without taking anything away from the practicality of the watch, making them robust in both wear and stylishness. Offering men’s, women’s and unisex styles, choose from electroplated bracelet designs, cross shaped rubber cuff designs with digital time-telling and the O-Ring Digi watch to name a few. The latter, rather space-age style uses a see-through ring-shaped display, rather like a polo-mint to show the time with hours shown as numbers and minutes as segments. If a more standard-display watch tickles your fancy, there’s plenty of those too, although they still have one-off design elements guaranteeing your watch will still become the talk of the town.
